With MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, patients have access to comprehensive rehabilitation services. Our physical and occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists work hand-in-hand with other rehabilitation professionals to design treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs. This team approach features state-of-the-art technology, advanced medical treatment based on the latest rehabilitation research, and a continuum of care that includes outpatient, inpatient, day treatment, and subacute programs.
  • Physical therapists can help people improve their quality of life by increasing motion and mobility, eliminating pain and promoting the prevention of further injury.The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation provides adults and children physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech-language pathology.
  • Speech language pathologists or speech therapists are trained to assess speech and language development as well as treat speech and language disorders. Speech-language pathologists can also help people with swallowing disorders.
  • Occupational therapy is based on engagement in meaningful activities and aims to restore, reinforce and enhance the abilities of those impacted by disease and injury to care for themselves, return to work and avoid further disability.
Each member of our team is dedicated to providing personalized wellness, injury prevention and rehabilitation services to every patient. This team includes highly-skilled rehabilitation specialists who have extensive post-graduate and doctoral-level training and provide the latest in evidence-based care. In fact, we help teach other healthcare professionals about physical medicine and rehabilitation—further highlighting the significant amount of experience, professionalism and knowledge of our team members.

Academic Department of Rehabilitation Medicine

Georgetown University's Department of Rehab Medicine offers academics on patient care, teaching, and research. Learn more about our partnership with Georgetown University's Department of Rehabilitation Medicine.

Our Adult Rehabilitation Treatments include:

  • Inpatient Physical Therapy

    Physical therapists evaluate strength, balance, range of motion, coordination, endurance and posture of each individual patient. On initial examination, the physical therapist develops a treatment plan specific to correcting pertinent physical findings. During the course of the rehabilitation period, physical therapists document progress, re-evaluate physical findings and modify treatment strategies as appropriate. Assistive devices such as crutches, canes and walkers are often used to increase patients’ independence.

    Some of the conditions we treat include:

    • Balance and Gross Motor Coordination
    • Developmental Disabilities
    • Gait Training
    • Heart and Lung Function

    • Muscle Strength and Endurance
    • Neurodevelopmental Technique (NDT) Trained Therapis
    • Wound Care

     

  • Inpatient Occupational Therapy

    During their hospital stay, patients are evaluated by occupational therapists to assess their ability to care for themselves and return to activities of daily living. Our staff will provide guidance and follow-up care to help maximize a patient's abilities before leaving the hospital.
